passionate penny pincherLaurie over at Passionate Penny Pincher sent over her recipes for the week. She has a couple of great slow cooker meals that are sure to come in handy for any of us who seem to always be short on time!

I am a huge fan of Chicken Tortilla Soup – but I have never attempted to make it in the slow cooker! I think that will change soon.

Her other recipe is a kid’s dream come true (ok…mine too!) – Mac & Cheese! I have a rocking mac & cheese recipe that I do in my slow cooker. I will have to pull it out and compare it to Laurie’s recipe. I have not made it in forever but after looking at her pic, I have a little motivation to make it soon.

If you don’t have a good slow cooker what are you waiting for? Did you know that it is Crocktober Menu Plan 10/2   Whats For Dinner? If you need a new Crock-pot, Amazon is offering some nice deals plus a $5 rebate. Head over and check them out!
